spoken for by manic matt. Interestingly he lives just down the road

I sent out five ‘if it fits it ships’ boxes this morning as I continue to clean and do a complete remodel of the shop. Here are some screw (Jorgensen) clamps that I’ve never used. They had five years of dust on them. I blew them off and here they are. In good shape. They’ve been on a rack on my shop wall next to the clamps I use. It’s a garison garage shop so it’s been dry. They all work good some large ones and some small ones. One Jorgensen and the others are other brands. There are 8 of them.

I won’t be mailing these, so before I put them up on Craigslist for a price I figured I’d offer them to anyone who is local enough to want them and pick them up. No cost to you. I don’t expect there to be a lot of people in this area who’ll see this on LJ’s but I thought I’d give it a try first as they’d go to a good home. I live in Southern Maine in Acton. Close to Sanford, Wells beach exit. About 30 miles south of Portland. 15 min. from the NH border.

Let me know by PM. I’ll post a taken in bold at the top if someone speaks for them. Or if no one does I’ll post a ‘put on craigslist’ notice at the top in a couple of days from now.

Boy, they’d be a nice find for me, but I’m in SE TN. Somebody will have a gold mine.

I’ve got four myself, all jorgies, they’ve never been used, had them for 18 years or so, bought from Spag’s of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. I’ve always WANTED to use them, but mostly they just hang on the wall and legitimize my woodworking persona.

You’re a very generous man, COTL!

That’s funny PK, hope you don’t mind if I borrow that one.

I like hand screws a lot. I’ve got on pair of 12 inchers and can really apply a lot more pressure than with Irwin quick clamps.

Not for everyone I guess.

Two of those are the best way to clamp something unclampable when on a jobsite. One clamp on the workpiece, the second clamp clamps the first to a horse.

Well, Mainiac Matt will be here in about an hour to pick them up. It’s on his way home from work, go figure huh? I mounted those clamps on a rack in the the corner of the shop about six years ago. Yesterday was the first time I’ve touched them since then to take them down to clean and get them ready for Matt to pick up. Long ago I did drill one and bolt it to a bench to use as a sort of vice. But if I haven’t touched them in six years it’s time for them to get some use with someone else who can use them. I’ve got a fair amount of parallel and F clamps. I don’t think I’ll miss them.

Thanks very much again Dan.

Very nice to meet you and see all of the work you’ve done on the house. The Cherry cabinets are really nice.

Good luck with the shop overhaul.
